3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Aromas start off a bit spicy and move to tart. Flavors are similar. Spice, nutty, yeasty, then tart. Finish is a bit dry after the tartness leaves the tounge. I like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bit of malt and caramel with spice. But from whatever I remember, changed when all JPs got funky.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin white head that quickly goes to a thin film and collar that leaves some lacing.
The aroma is doughy malts with tart, slightly sour, fruits and some spices.
The flavor is earthy yeast with some bready malts. It has some tart and slightly sour fruits, wood and some spices and a dry lightly bitter finish. It has a bit of a washed out and watery flavor. The mouthfeel is medium with lots of sharp carbonation.
Overall, it’s a pretty typical JP brew, although not one of their better ones. I’d prefer more sourness and less watery flavors.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle, no 17 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours hazy orange with a collapsing head. Brett aroma, citric to acidic. Flavour is subdued sweet and with a classic brett flavour of acidic to citric notes. Quite nice. Finish holds a nice caramel sweetness beneath and smooth and controlled brett flavour. Mellow and nice. Far finish holds a mild woody tone.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
2007-11-30, Papsø’s Blind Tasting
Cloudy light amber color; huge head (and I start suspecting...). Sourish, infected aroma over all, maybe a bit fruity. Dry and astringent mouthfeel, sour and buttery, clearly infected. Too high and harsh bitterness. Undrinkable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Pours a hazy, amber golden with huge amouts of sediment and a lively, of-white head that leaves some lacing. Lightly tart Brett-aroma. Fairly light in body with lightly fruity notes and a whiff of...cinnamon?? There’s some Bretty accents present without making the beer sour as such. Dry, slightly leathery finish. Interesting - as most Jolly Pumpkins. 301107
